hagel. i think he'd be a good secretary of defense, but the performance yesterday was panned by people on all sides of the political spectrum. >> as claire mccaskill told me yesterday, she said, look. he is more used to asking questions than answering questions. there were a lot of issues. and what didn't help, of course, is that his former good friend, john mccain, just eviscerated him, grilled him, didn't give him a chance. yes or no. give me an answer. were you correct or incorrect? i mean, there is a way to try to do that, but clearly he came with a very hostile attitude. and it was very painful to watch. >> yeah. awkward at times. >> i mean, john mccain, mika, didn't let him answer a question. i'm sorry, out of that exchange, it was not chuck hagel who looked bad. >> ted cruz looked even worse. >> yeah. >> oh, my god. >> we're going to show all those coming up. >> he wasn't prepared, mika, in a lot of ways that were concerning. i think, again, the democrats, republicans, independents alike, if the republicans party thinks badgering an ill-prepared witness that way is going to help

in a second with congressman gar see amplt i want to get the hagel holdup. the haggle over haggle and how much more lit reconciliation can i use? listen to how david gregory pressed john mccain over the weekend where he stands and where he feels about chuck hagel. take a listen. >> it is payback time for chuck hagg hagel, that's what this amounted to. >> of course not. we will have a vote when we get back and i am confident senator hagel will probably have the votes necessary. >> you're not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no. i don't believe he is qualified. i don't believe that we should hold up his nomination any further. >> i don't believe he is qualified. susan, when did john mccain lose complete and utter faith in his old buddy, the person that he would have nominated for defense secretary if john mccain had won back in 2000? >> one argues it happened while he was running for election and didn't get the support and when hagel supported barack obama for president. that aside, the bigger problem is what happened in the senate. we now have left this nominee who will get confirmed weaker f
lindsey graham still doesn't know enough about benghazi and he is not going to let chuck hagel go forward unless we find out some more. >> i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia directorship, hagel to be confirmed to secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting. >> bill: i want more -- so he says he wants to know what now, by the way, remember lindsey graham started out by saying, i am not going to -- we are not going to move forward with hagle unless we get the secretary, of state, herself to testify on benghazi. she did. so then, he said, no, we are not going to move forward unless we get leon panetta to come forward. so did john brennan and they have had three freakin hearings on the senate. what more do they want? now lindsey graham says, i want to know minute by minute everything that president obama did the night of the benghazi attack, you know, which is absurd. congress cannot make a demand like that. by the way, maybe they should give us minute by minute what george bush did after the septembe

speech last night, members of congress were locked in a bitter fight over the nomination of chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense. in a sharply divided 14-11 vote, the armed services committee sent hagel's nomination to the senate floor but only after hours of intense debate. >> we saw, with his nomination, something truly extraordinary, which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. i would suggest to you that to my knowledge, that is unprecedented to see a foreign nation like iran publicly celebrating a nomination. >> i want to put on the record that this senator feels like that senator cruz has gone over the line. he basically has impugned the patriotism of the nominee in your conclusions, which you are entitled to come to, about him, in essence, about being cozy with iran. >> my friend, senator nelson, i wrote down the words, criticizing our senator there for implying that chuck hagel was cozy with terrorist-type countries, referring to iran. i'd say he's endorsed by them. you can't get any doze zier than that. >> i've go

their love. they're showing their love for chuck hagel by filibustering his nomination. now they're showing their love for america's children by refusing to endorse universal preschool. their showing their love for workers by refusing to raise the minimum wage. they're showing their love for all americans by refusing to accept a reasonable compromise to avoid the sequester. in other words they don't love any of us. they hate us all! that's their valentine's day message. all right. we'll expand on that and a whole lot more on today's full court press. but today, we get the latest, the current news update from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. good morning to you. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. the president is on his way to georgia this morning to talk about universal pre. doesn't is a proposal he unveiled in his state of the union address on tuesday saying he wants to ensure high-quality schooling for every 4-year-old in the country. today, obama is visiting a prekindergarten classroom at an early childhood learning center and then he's speaking at a community recreation center in geor

of chuck hagel to be secretary of defense. while we were home last week, i had the opportunity to watch the senate confirmation hearing, and i was dismayed by the way many of the republicans on that hearing chastised mr. hagel. mr. hagel is a man of integrity. i -- the question from one of the senators about, do you think the surge worked, and senator hagel was such he didn't want to give him a direct answer. i would have said no, it didn't work. 1,200 americans killed. i don't know how many iraqis. look at the country today. it is totally falling apart. that was a question towards senator hagel. . the iraq war was very unnecessary. it was manufactured by the previous administration, and there was a marine general, greg newbold, who actually wrote an article in "time" after the war started and one of the points he made that i'm going to share with you, mr. speaker, is some of the missteps included the distortion of intelligence in the buildup to the war. the distortion of intelligence in the buildup to the war. in the history of washington, if ever our government needed integrity, it's

. >>> 20 minutes past the hour. time to look at top stories after a bitter confirmation chuck hagel has been sworn in as u.s. defense secretary. the ceremony took place less than 30 minutes ago at the pentagon in alexandria, virginia. hagel expected to make remarks later this hour. >>> police released photos wanted for questioning, they say 22-year-old tanesha howard was inside a black suv when shots were fired. her mother says the suspected shooter is the young woman's boyfriend. >>> the star of an iconic anti-smoking ad has died. >> they say nicotine isn't addictive. how can they say that? >> debi austin became famous to are this commercial warning others about the dangers of cigarette smoking. she died friday after a long bat well cancer. >>> the college admissions test known as the s.a.t. is getting a makeover. the college board says the new test will focus more on knowledge and skills high schoolers need to succeed in college. no word on when students will begin taking the new test. >>> talk back today, is it right for dennis rodman to be in north korea? facebook.com/carolcnn or tw
that they confirm chuck hagel. some republicans have said they're going to walk out on the committee members. they're going to walk out. what's the latest? >> the republican aides who spoke to politico said republicans will walk out. we called the republicans. said are you going to walk out? spoke to crews who were on the committee. they said we're not walking out. they're not going to vote for him but they're not going to walk out. it looks like he will have the votes in committee. it will move out into the senate. but you always have a possibility of something happening. senator inhoff from oklahoma said he might put a hold or he might try to delay the confirmation. you certainly saw lindsey graham on sunday say until he finds out what the president had for breakfast on the morning of the benghazi attacks, he will put a hold on everything and then some. it is unclear what the final confirmation is but it is a step forward at 2:30. >> bill: if they call a filibuster and john mccain said he would not support a filibuster, it looks like there would be 60 votes to stop the filibuster. >> that's righ
at the risk of national security. >> we need to get to hagel, but joe, isn't a negotiation where nobody gets exactly what they want? and are you all saying -- not you -- are the republicans saying, well, because we didn't like the last negotiation, we're not going to play fair on this one? we refuse? come on. come on. close some loopholes and then let's get some spending cuts. >> again, the republicans did something they haven't done in a quarter century. >> what's that? >> they agreed to raise taxes. that ain't nothing. so they make this huge step -- no, it's been the center of the debate for four years. and liberals have been talking about raising taxes for 25 years. you asked. i'm going to answer. >> okay. >> and so for the first time in a quarter century, republicans agreed to raise taxes. and what the president proves is what a lot of conservatives have long suspected. that he was going to raise taxes, and then he'd never come forward with cuts. he'd ask for more tax increases. and then you'd have people like paul krugman saying you know what? we need to raise more taxes, and we don't h

president obama's nominee to be the new secretary of defense, chuck hagel. whether or not they filibuster him that. >> don't have the votes, although at least one republican senator is threatening to try a filibuster anyway. senator lindsey graham of south carolina is also now threatening to put a hold on the hagel nomination, even though there is no precedent for that ever. no cabinet nomination has ever been filibustered or held by a senator. while lindsey graham is making the decision as to whether or not he wants to be famous forever for doing something nobody else has ever done in the history of the senate in order to block chuck hagel, the current defense secretary leon panetta is on his way out. they gave mr. panetta his sendoff on saturday, though it looks like he'll probably be in charge for another week or so. his time has been a period of lasting change for the u.s. military. after the end of the iraq war, he has overseen the beginning of the end of america's longest war ever in afghanistan. the clinton era policy of "don't ask, don't tell" ended under leon panetta's watch, at

hagel, could be one step closer to being confirmed today. the nomination will be put to a vote. >>> one of panetta's last acts as defense secretary was to extend a list of benefits for same sex spouses and significant others of service members. the perks which were previously denied by the pentagon include child care services, as well as access to on-base commissaries and movie theaters. the policy changes go into effect once training is completed. >> jobs do you know about what's on your credit report? as many as 40 million americans have errors on their credit reports, things like misspelled names, wrong addresses and birth dates. and even in some cases, wrong payment history. those mistakes can keep you from getting a loan, qualifying for lower interest rates and even cost you your job. if you find an error on your credit report, you should immediately contact the credit agencies. >>> this morning, intrigue is building around the world about who will be the next pope. next month more than 100 cardinals will meet at the vatican to begin the closed door ritual called the conclave. 11 c

's blocking of further consideration of the nomination of chuck hagel to be the next secretary of defense. we'll be back here in chicago as soon as the president arrives. >> good morning, thanks for talking with us. >> how unusual is it to have the president's pick blocked at this stage of the game? guest: it is very unusual. the senator has never filibustered the president's nomination for the defense secretary. the most bizarre thing, i think, is probably the most frustrating for the people watching this, particularly outside of washington, is that you know, former senator hagel is former republican senator, mind you. the reason why it was defeated because the majority leader harry reid switched his vote to no so he could bring the vote back up again after the senate comes back from recease. a lot of republican senators were saying that they did not want this choice filibustered. even if they wanted to vote no on his nomination he at least deserves an up down vote in order to be approved. the republicans decided to use this vote as a way to extract more information from the white house on i
